Pixar is notorious for making some of the best animated films out there; the kind kids can watch and adults can enjoy just as much. Recently, information has been circling about a few new sequels to everyone’s favorite movies.
In 2013, the prequel to Pixar’s wildly popular Monster’s Inc., Monster’s University, which, according to Time Entertainment, is the only Pixar prequel thus far, will hit theaters around June.
A sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo, which will be aptly titled Finding Nemo 2, was just announced. Director Andrew Stanton, who also directed the first, just signed onto the project, giving it the last push it needed. This news comes right on the cusp of the re-release of the first movie which will be in 3D and hit theaters on September 14 of this year.
Bill Capodagli, the co-author of the book, Innovate the Pixar Way: Business Lessons from the World’s Most Creative Corporate Playground, believes that Finding Nemo 2 will do just fine. “I have all the confidence in the world that Finding Nemo 2 is going to be a fabulous story.”
NME.com reports that Lindsey Collins, who worked on WALL-E, and John Carter will also work on the sequel, and a new writer, Victoria Strouse, will write the script.
Finding Nemo isn’t the only movie set to have a sequel, according to E!. It is quite possible that Toy Story 4 could be in the works as well. Actor, Tom Hanks, who plays Woody in the franchise, hinted at its possible production some time last year. Nothing is completely official with this sequel, but if the rumors are true, our favorite toys could have another crazy adventure worthy of the big screen.
In the meantime, Time Entertainment reports that Pixar isn’t leaving us with only sequels to keep ourselves occupied. They will release a few new original stories in 2014 to give us something new to sink our teeth into.
Until these rumors are completely confirmed, we have a few Pixar movies to look forward to in the future. As for the rest, we will all just have to be patient and wait to see what comes.
